It is founded around the oxbow meander of the Perak River, making the town looks like near a bay. The locals believes that in the future, the river’s flow will erode the narrow neck of the land between the loops of the meander and turning the town into an island.
The only method to get in is by local bus services. You may hire a taxi but the price isn't cheap.
